I don't know how I came up with the phrase "Life is a Drawing, Capture it". It's confusing isn't it?.

House extension proposal for Arana House in Rivera del Manzanares, Madrid. Developed for second year architecture design class in Madrid Architecture School, ETSAM.

The expansion of Arana house in the Ribera of Manzanares river is a complex project due to a law of conservation of buildings with a certain typology established years after the making of the house. That means that any alteration in the House has to be done now with the actual normative and basically the full house would have to be be modified in the case of intervene in it. That is the reason why the house has not suffered any renewal work from the outside since a long time. 
However, the needs of the inhabitants in the house have change through the years, what makes an expansion inevitable. One of the sons, who is a Star Wars figures and models passionate is looking for a bigger room to keep on collecting stuff. From the start, the decision of putting a container in the flat roof of the house was an idea that seemed to work. This kind of industrial element doesn't try to mimic with the house but with the cinematic imaginary that film maker George Lucas created decades ago. The contrast with the house helped to emphasize the idea of an alien ship that rest in the roof. 
As the extension is just a prefabricated element that is put on the roof without the need of mayor work, the problem of having a license to build is avoided. The façade of the house itself is not modified and in the worst of the situations if the element has to be removed, this was a task that could easily be done. 
The user can access to this pilotis elevated container from the terrace and from his old room through a spiral stairs that connect both spaces. The interior is completely diaphanous so the user can organize the inside of the room depending on his needs thanks to articulated screens. The floor works also as a container so that there is no need of extra furniture to keep things and space is liberated for other purposes. The fact that the container is elevated makes it possible to use the space bellow it during all year long, keeping the user away of rain and sun and becoming an nice place to stay and look a the river from the top of the house.

Architectural proposal for a first year course in Madrid Architecture School, ETSAM.

We had to do an intervention on Preciados street in the center of Madrid., I came up with the idea of making personal capsules that came out from earth so you could hide, rest, read, sleep and whatever you would like to do there. A moment of  solitude in the middle of the crowded city.


'CONVERSANDO CON YAMASHIROGUMI' was presented on VHS to a  student video award that took place in Madrid. This video was later included in the DVD DAI 1 2003 OBESIÓN LUZ published by Instituto Juan de Herrera.

in Architecture School of Madrid on october 2002

Music video created for a class in Architecture School. It was presented to a student video contest in VHS format and later included in the DVD, DAI 1 2003 OBESIÓN LUZ published by Instituto Juan de Herrera.

To make this video I used images recorded by Ricardo Santonja in the Architecture drawing classes, I digitally altered them to produce the burned black and white style and I accompanied them with the fabulous soundtrack of Katsuhiro Otomo's AKIRA film composed by Geinoh Yamashiro. It pretends to be a dialogue between a piece of music that I like that was conceived and recorded years ago and a bunch of images I wanted to reuse.

Skyscraper proposal in Castellana street in Madrid for the first year architecture design class in Madrid Architecture School, ETSAM.

A skyscraper in the middle of Castellana, with surrounding building witch height is less than ten floors. The proposal is a building diferenciated in two parts. The first one made of the street level concrete basement with few holes on the façade as height as the surroundong buildings. The second one starts above that point were perimeter structure comes out keeping a full glass façade in its interior so that the main structure works also as a brisolei.
This differentiation also reflects the building in its interior. the first opaque part is were conferences and reunion rooms are located and behind the big glass façade is were offices are located. I also tried to play with the idea of being a building made in two parts with a heavy concrete part bellow and a lightweight structure mounted as a later enlargement.
The building is organized inspired by Richard Rogers Lloyd's building were service and served spaces are remarked. Vertical communication as stairs and elevators are in the east façade while north façade keeps all the installations. The goal is to keep a square plant as versatile and free as possible

Shot with JVC miniDV camcorder in ETSAM, Madrid
April 2003

Short film developed for the first year DAI 2 (Drawing Analyzing and Ideation 2) class with professors Atxu Amann, Marta Maiz and Ricardo Santonja in the Architecture School of Madrid, ETSAM.

It was our first year of studies in architecture school and Elena, Cristian, Alba and me end up together to make a short film for DAI class. I thinks this was one the first experiences with video for all of us. We managed to borrow a DV camcorder, record the stuff in a miniDV tape and end up editing on VHS...then we took back the VHS tape, play it in a TV  and re-record it in miniDV again to finally import to premiere to add the music. We had a great time.
